// NORUM'S BLUES (TAIPEI, 2010) //

We have a true legend in our midst. Norum's got a natural ability to sing and play the blues. This song was improvised at one of our sound checks in Taipei, Taiwan.

That sounds so sexy...
Really nice blues, John. Makes me feel like dancing, especially if I have someone to dance on it with.
And Joey I didn't know you play drums as well! So all you have secret talents and you can replace each other, hehe!
Hug you all,
Deni

No Ian there is no snow in Taiwan. only in high mountains anyway. So come back to the warm weather soon!! :)

frampala said...

Oh God,how I love those little backstage diamonds!
A show with Europe playing the blues sounds like a great idea.

monicacoruna said...

Amazing! I have no words... and Joey's face playing drums... but please, let Ian play...hahaha
Now seriously, I really like the way you've improvised,you look like if you had been playing soul for a long time. A suggestion...why don't you include something like this in the gigs?I'm sure people would like it...
Kisses. Mónica.
